Apple & chocolate Torte

I have been rummaging through my recipe archive and a came across a recipe for this delicious dessert / cake. It features the deliciously delicate flake chocolate, as far as I know only Cadbury's makes flakes. So apologies if you can't get hold of this chocolate if you aren't in the UK. 
The resulting bake is a tender apple scented delight, you can serve when cold with cream or ice cream or unadorned.

  • 350g plain flour
  • 125g butter
  • 125g caster sugar
  • Vanilla sugar for sprinkling
  • Large chocolate flake
  • 2 or 3 cooking apples
  • Preheat your oven to 180c fan / 200c non fan
  • Rub the butter into the flour and then stir in the caster sugar
  • Butter a loose bottomed or spring formed cake tin ( roughly 22cm)
  • Press down 1/3 of the crumble mixture into your tin
  • Crumble over the flake and cover the base
  • Slice your apples finely and arrange evenly over the chocolate layer
  • Sprinkle with your vanilla sugar
  • Pour on the rest of the crumble on top of the apples
  • Pat down gently
  • Bake for 25 -35 mins until lightly golden
  • Leave to cool in the tin and then carefully remove the tin sides.

What a lovely looking bake Linzi. It's like an apple shortbread with a Iayer of chocolate. I guess any chocolate can be used, no reason I can see it needs to be a flake.
